    Is there any (official) source about the figures of iPad users who are running Windows on their main PC (vs. Mac OS)?

    We are developing an iPad App that communicates with a Mac or Windows host PC and we are curious about the ratio.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I'm running Windows 7, but not out of choice.
    You'd be better creating a Poll so the results are easier to read.

    Windows 7 on 3 different computers. No matter what, there are going to be more windows users than mac users that own the iPad. Windows owns like 90% of the marketshare on desktop and laptop OS's, so if 100% of mac people bought iPads, to match that number only 15% or so of windows users would have to buy an iPad. Very rough math here, but I think I explained my thoughts semi clearly.

    I converted to Mac on both Labtop and Desk last January and never regretted the move. I still use my Windows 7 box out in the garage for my sim racing and gaming box..

    This article should answer most questions on iPad owners trends. I didn't post the actualy article because there's a large number of graphs and charts.
